US-CERT has received multiple reports of WannaCry ransomware infections in many countries around the world. Ransomware is a type of malicious software that infects a computer and restricts users’ access to it until a ransom is paid to unlock it.

The Cybersecurity Framework Workshop 2017 will offer participants the opportunity to:
- Share and learn about Cybersecurity Framework users’ experiences that will help others in making effective use of the Framework,
- Discuss and share their views about proposed updates to the Framework to assist NIST in finalizing Version 1.1 later in 2017, and
- Learn about new Framework-related policy issues and the progress of others’ technical work.
It will include multiple plenary sessions as well as concurrent breakout sessions. There will be ample opportunity for networking. The current agenda is available here
The Framework has been available and used by many organizations across the nation’s critical infrastructure and other sectors since February 2014 when it was published. It also is being used in other countries. This workshop is designed for people who already have a foundational knowledge of Framework. NIST recommends that registrants visit the Framework’s web page and the Framework Overview webcast to gain foundational knowledge before the workshop.
Among other information, visitors to that web page will find videos on two webcasts held on March 1 that introduce and review the Framework and describe in detail the proposed changes.
